About the session

Making key changes to your website and the digital services that you offer can create a better experience for everyone. We call this digital accessibility.

Join our session to learn how the City of Minneapolis and Hennepin County are creating a more positive, inclusive digital experience for all.

In our session, you’ll learn:

*   How we’re making our organization’s digital experience more accessible.

*   How to make digital content accessible for all the ways that people think and those who’ve experienced trauma.

*   Resources to help people learn how to use technology and the internet.

*   Assistive technology and help offered at Hennepin County Libraries.

*   Ways to work with others to make things more accessible for everyone.

*   We encourage government employees to attend. This free event is open for anyone to attend.
